# Addition Dice Game: Zebra Edition

Simple addition practice for kids = woot! This Zebra’s dying to get colored all crazy! Roll a die. Then color in a section of the picture that is equal to the amount on the die (example: if you roll a 6, color in “3 +3” or “5 + 1”). First player to color in the entire zebra with crazy colors wins. Students will also write down the math facts they use at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

# Multiplication Dice Game: Landscape

Here’s an easy way to practice the most basic multiplication facts (totals to 6). Players roll the die, and color in a section of the picture that contains the equivalent. For example, if you roll 4, color in “2×2” or “4×1” or “1×4.” Enjoy!

# Fancy Turtle! (Odd/Evens Dice Game)

My friend’s class is struggling with odds and evens. So I made her this game and I thought I’d share it.  It’s really simple: Roll a die and if it’s odd, color in a section of the turtle with a heart. If it’s even, color in a section with a star. When the kids finish the game, the turtle has shapes and different colors on it, making it a “fancy” turtle.

I also made a version where players roll 2 dice and add to see if the sum is even or odd.  While I didn’t make a page for multiplication, it would be easy to instruct your kids to multiply the numbers on the two dice and then determine odd or even…

# EASY Place Value Game… Around the World (with a twist!)

So you’ve probably heard about the classroom game, Around the World (IN A NUT SHELL: The teacher shows 2 students a math flash card. The first one to blurt out the answer moves to stand next to a new student’s seat and faces off with them using a new flash card. The winner gets to advance to a new student and the kids try to move as many seats as possible.) Here’s a fun twist on the classic game.

TEACHER PREP:

1. Write any multi-digit number on a note card (for older grades, add decimal points)
2. Underline 1 digit in the number
3. Repeat until you have a stack of cards
4. OPTIONAL: label the back of each card so you know what place value is underlined on the front (tens, hundreds, thousands…)

PLAY:  Instead of telling you the answer to a math fact (like in regular Around the World), the student must name the place value underlined on the card to win the face-off.

# Spring Time Math Facts Dice Game

I love playing math games… and what student can’t benefit from some basic math facts practice. So here’s a game for you.

1. Print 1 copy of the worksheet for each player.
2. Roll the die (let’s say you roll a 5)
3. Color in the section of the picture that equals the number you rolled (for example, you could color in the section labeled “4+1=”). Make sure you write the answer in the section so it becomes a complete number sentence (“4+1=5”).
4. Take turns rolling, and coloring (any color you want)
5. First player to color in the entire page wins!

Make sure you choose the operation you want: basic addition, basic subtraction, basic multiplication or basic division. Happy Spring!
